If you're asking about the parts with the flame stickers on them, they swing out for transformation purposes. Otherwise, the legs bump into them when you swing the piece down for trailer mode.

I know he's like one of your most number one guy, so you have high hopes for any toy form of his. I'm sure there are a number of unofficial options out there that could get you closer to a Masterpiecey feel, but for a main line TF toy he hits the spot. I mean he is the first "Neo G1" Matrix evolved Rodimus Prime (not Hot Rod), in the perfect scale/class main line toy we've gotten. Ever!
OK maybe there is a Roddy P Titanium figure? Right? Well I've never had him and he was some so and such subline, so he doesn't count!

Fer sher bra. He totally looks like a out of whack Barbie doll with out them. :lol:

This! The figure stands really well as a, "pout-pout-I-only-like-to-have -one-kind-of-fun- and-change-is-dumb" 2 mode TF. Dino is nowhere near as bad as feared, and robot is really good. But then DANG! There is a third mode, and it's better than most the torsos from CW.

william-james88 wrote:Plus I dont have anything else like the winebago or the rodimus Prime mode in my collection that looks as good.
Again, TOTALLY. He earns points alone for being the first official CHUG LEADER RODIMUS PRIME toy since the G1 toy.

And I forget who said it a few posts or a page back, but it's genius and true. A base or laser cannon mode from the camper parts would have been really awesome. Great toy without it, but that would have definitely cranked it to 11.

Cobotron wrote:I opened Grimlock and Rodimus last night.

I agree with Scotty's point that Rodimus could be a better figure at a higher price point. They all could be. And he does feel like ambition was truncated by corporate parameters, but he is what he is. And for what he is, he's a pretty dang fun figure!
It's really great to finally have an update to the fully Primed out Rodimus. Love how bulky and imposing the sculpt is unlike the funny old skinny G1 Rodimus. I think all 3 modes are nice to look at.
I'm ok with letting the deluxe thighs do the work of the Leader's shoulders. Somebody once called me out for having MP-10's shoulders pulled out to increase his range of motion, and thought, well, I want him in a certain pose, and if he has the articulation to get there, why not use it. I've been using my imagination to to add or erase aspects to these toys since the 80's, so it's kind of become second nature. Other than the shoulders though, I think his range of motion is pretty dern good. The legs and feet are great! Head sculpt is cool, and the expression on his face silently screams, "I mean business!".
The Deluxe Hot Rod is great. He ticks all the right boxes to be Hot Rod. The only thing I think he's lacking is character. I think the Classics and TR versions do a better job at that. Something about the blank expression on his too mature face leaves me feeling the same way. Where's the cocky chutzpah we know and love?
The only other neg I have is the placement of the handles on the guns. It works for BIGGIN mode, but in Deluxe he's just holding them all wrong. I think they could have scooted those handles back a little and still gotten away with the combining gimmick.
All said and done I'm happy with the figure. Fun to run through the different modes. Looks the part. A welcome and long awaited addition to the collection.

Image

Grimlock is also great. Way better than I expected. I was pleasantly surprised by his heft out of the box. From pictures, i thought the Rex mode looked weaksauce, but it's way better than I anticipated. Dodged a bullet there. The legs are still pretty goofy, but can be finagled into "good enough". The stickers on mine were applied better than a lot of TR figure's were. That may be a case by case sitch though.
Again in photos I had my reservations about torso mode, and combined for that matter, BUT, torso is awesome. The shoulders stay locked in well when posing combined arms. They legs take some work to get them to where they need to be but once there, they're nice and stable. Plus the shape just looks way better than it did in photos. Also waist swivel in a combiner?!?!? YES! One little detail I love is the placement of the enigma or Power Master in the dino mouth. It's the little things.

For whatever my opinion is worth, I think they're both really nice main line toys, and fun to play with.
And that's all I'm ever really looking for. Fun and play! ;)^

I could not agree more except i like dino head folded down for combined mode

Shame to see all the hate for starscream, it's mostly deserved, he is kind of a vile excuse for a complete transformer, what with his inability to form a jet mode. Still love the poses King Scream can throw though, his new feet are great :-D

I can't help but double-dip at this point! I may keep Evolved Rodimus Prime displayed as such, and Badboy Rodimus as Evil Rod. :SG-BOTS:

I'm glad yer loving dem PotP figures, CoBro! I especially dig Slash and her ability to wield just about any TF weapon and look cool doin it.

She DOES do that doesn't she! She's had Swoop's sword from almost day one, but that's because Swoop has been chilling in Pterry mode for a while.

I also like to switch weapons between the two Deluxe Dinos. Makes more sense to me. The flyer can snipe from on high, and the burly land brawler comes at you full force with a sword in your grill. Slag isn't afraid to get up on a sucker hand to hand like.

But, then again none of the Dinobots are really afraid to do that are they? :lol: ... :MR-T:

It took 30 years but I finally got Slag (Slug). G1 Slag is the only Dinobot I never had and now he is the first PotP Dinobot I have. I should be getting Grimlock next week. I don't know when I'll be ordering Swoop and Slash. I see what Emgo was saying about wishing Slug's armor folded out to make his wings but the way I see it the less moving parts the better for stability in limb mode. Really looking forward to completing the new Dinobots.

As for leader OP, I don't collect leaders so the only way I'll be getting him is if somebody has an amazing sale at some point this year. I do hope that happens because I really like the mold.

I can only agree. Mine will definitely not end up as a combiner limb. He looks too darn cool in robot mode. Maybe I'll pose him fighting with Cutthroat as soon as I'll get him in my fingers :twisted:

Takara POTP June and July Listings with Dreadwind, Blackwing, Individual Dinobots and More

Postby william-james88 » Fri Jan 12, 2018 9:15 am

Astute fans noticed that the combiner teams were absent from the previous listings of Takara's Power of the Primes toys, which so far is the same line as Hasbro's Power of the Primes. Draedwind and Blackwing were also missing and so was Starscream. Did that means that at least the combiner teams would be different from Hasbro's? Would a team like the Dinobots be instead released in a Unite Warriors style boxset (regardless of them being different or not)? Was there no Dreadwing and Blackwing because those came out as Buster and Hydra in Japan?

Nope, none of that. The reason the Dinobots, Starscream, and the rest were not in the initial listings is because they are all coming out in June and July instead. Like Hasbro, every toy is being released individually. There are no Combiner Box Sets and Dreadwing and Blackwing are being released under those names. For now, looking at the fact that these are being released individually and with the same names as Hasbro's Power of the Primes toys, the safest bet is that these will also be identical to the Hasbro releases (pictured below). This fits with Takara's recent confirmation that this year will have a brand unification like never before.

Here are the upcoming releases for Takara's Power of the prime line according to Planet Iacon (S.T.F.U.)'s Facebook page.

Power of the Primes wave 2 – June

PP-10 Alchemist Prime
PP-11 Dinobot Slug
PP-12 Dinobot Swoop
PP-13 Dinobot Snarl
PP-14 Dinobot Sludge
PP-15 Dinobot Grimlock

Power of the Primes wave 3 – July

PP-16 Moonracer
PP-17 Dreadwind
PP-18 Blackwing
PP-19 Starscream

The Terrorcons are my most anticipated group of characters from PotP! Cutthroat looks great, and they've been needing an update for some time now.

Hasbro is doing a good job of hiding the fact some of these new figures combine -- my friend asked if the Dinobots were meant to be limbs, since it's not mentioned anywhere on the packaging for the deluxe figures.....I'm still confused as to why they'd "hide" it. :-?

I had a chance to take s'more pics of Rodimus -- what a fun figure. :rodimusstar:

Like I said in the other potp thread the preorder prices are sightly more than jazz for the deluxe and the voyager prices are closer to that of legends line which came with different decos and accessories. Not saying this means anything but it is something to note. http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Search?HideInStock=false&HidePreorder=false&HideSoldOut=false&InventoryStatus=i%2Cp%2Cso&PageSize=50&SortOrder=New&Series=13137&Company=2

I don't get why some fans would buy a Hasbro version of a figure and say that it's okay,, but then they buy the Takara version that has a differently colored Autobot insignia and then they say it's perfect despite it being identical. I can see people buying Takara figures if it's characters that won't be reissued, unique redecos, full on premium makeovers like Buster Prime, original figures (especially those Hasbro wouldn't get), and metallic paint jobs, but most Takara versions are just like the Hasbro version but with different color placements.

What I did want from the Takara versions of the POTP figures was to have new weapons or at the very least fix the color issues that Leader Optimus and Rodimus have.

The Terrorcons are my most anticipated group of characters from PotP!

Mine as well together with (Optimal) Optimus Pirmal. I'll definitely make an Abominus because I don't like Hungurrr's other modes anyway and the Torso looks awesome. But I'm not sure if I want to use the others in their limb modes. Maybe he'll get some Stunticons, Combaticons the The Fallen as limbs.

I really like them as Infernocons from The Last Knight. Infernocus is not bad but I prefer them as individual figures and I don't mind Hungurrr's missing. He wasn't a good torso anyway.

Have you done something to Galvatron's cannon? It looks awesome like a galaxy's inside :shock:

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND...............That Sucks, That REALLY REALLY sucks. Am I surprised...no, but disappointed...YES. Everything about Unite Warriors was awesome, and the very least :TAKARATOMY: could have done was given us some cool new packaging. Heck they aren't even releasing Buster & Hydra together as a 2-pack (not even calling them Buster & Hydra, just using the Hasbro names...)

Well, that's truly a shame. But it is what it is, life goes on. The Good News is -My little impulse purchase of Dreadwind at my sons insistence will not go to waste. I can now start planning my PotP purchasing accordingly. If I can get 1 figure per week on average, (I have 3 deluxes and 2 voyagers to purchase), that will keep me going for some time.

So at this point, why would anyone want to purchase the :TAKARATOMY: versions? There is no difference. Hopefully Online retailers will understand this and scale back their pre orders significantly, because I seriously doubt they will have many takers.
